In the midst

I'm living on a yo-yo. I max out on S and he plays "nice" and then I ease up and then he stays up all night and flakes out on me and I max out...
He's twenty. He doesn't have a job and his girlfriend's step-dad kicked him out of their house so he can't go back.
We're stuck with him.
How do I get him out of our home?
I don't know what God wants us to do but I know that God is with me in the midst of all this stress, frustration and grief.

Hey there. I do not know how you are doing it, other than with His help. Kathy, I know that YOU know that God has a plan for Sam. Sam's just not listening. I wish I had some answers for you. I wish I could shake him for you. It always astounds me that multiple children growing up in the same home at the same time can all be so different. Not different in a good way...you know what I mean.

I'm assuming you have done this already...counseling for you and the rest of the family? I'm guessing Sam wouldn't go even if you wanted him to.

Girl, I am just throwing up some arrow prayers for you and for your entire family, including Sam. It must be difficult to see the sweet baby boy I know he must have been in this young adult that he has become.

Love you. Praying for you.

I'm so sorry for what you are going through. I have been there and in a way still am, it's just that my son is across the country from me now. In fact, he's in court ordered detox right now!

I'm praying that God will give you a peace about this and help you have the strength to do what you must!
